Edward Stephen Kosches affectionately known as Mr. K. or Stevie K was born on July 13th 1941 in Mount Vernon. Steve was a lifelong resident of New Rochelle. After a three year battle with cancer he is finally at peace and reunited with his wife Kathy and his mother Katie in heaven. Although we mourn Steve’s loss on Earth, those who knew Steve may find peace knowing in heaven he’s able to surf fish from the shores of Montauk, drift fish for bass on the LAZY BONES, smoke cigars, drink wine, have a Kettle One on the rocks with lots of olives, remind us that “If it bugs you, he can help” and last but not least watch over all of his beloved friends and family forever.
